COVID-19 FAQs

Answers to some common questions

If you have a question about our response to Coronavirus and you can't find your answer on this page, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The highly anticipated COVID-19 vaccine is expected to begin rolling out in Australia soon, with older people and aged care workers expected to get first priority.

We’re waiting on the government's aged care worker vaccination policy before developing our own policy on immunisation.

Our duty is to continue supporting our clients, while minimising the risk to others. If a client tests positive for COVID-19, any team member who has been in contact with them will immediately be required to self isolate for 14 days, and any other clients the support worker has visited will be notified.

If the client who has tested positive requires services home care services to stay healthy and safe, we will work with them to ensure they receive the support they need, while taking the utmost precautions to protect our team from the virus.

Our team are on the front-line, so we take their safety, and that of their colleagues, very seriously. As soon as we discover a team member has been tested for COVID-19, they must self isolate until their test result is known. They must provide evidence of a negative test result to continue working.

We closely follow the health advice and updates from NSW Health, Health Victoria and Queensland Health and regularly ask our team members to confirm that they have not attended any hotspots.
